Just really good

I've been using Quickbooks for 2.5 years now and I am very happy with it. They keep improving it, and it's still very simple and self intuitive to use, even though they are always adding cool new features.


I am freelancer and recently signed up to their product for freelancers. Happy so far.

Josh D

The essential plan has everything a self employed person might need. Love it!
